Sapphire Autumn (NaPoWriMo)

http://www.napowrimo.net/day-twenty-five-5/

Write a poem that:  Is specific to a season; Uses imagery that relates to all five senses (sight, sound, taste, touch, and smell); Includes a rhetorical question…

Autumn, sapphires weaved through hair

Nip of dark frost sparks eyes, beware…

Copper shoulders caped in flame-tanged fragrance…

Full sunset season, does the lady wear.

What pales sunned countenance with sorrow

While ‘mid rustled leaves feet, slippered, dance?

Her lips taste salt, singing tear-inked hesitance…

Will true heart’s longing meet her on chill morrow?

The Lavender Merchant

https://lightmotifs.wordpress.com/2019/03/14/three-things-challenge-pl29/

Today’s prompt: merchant, danger, lavender

Merchant of lavender, marvelous…

He smelled herb-sweet, summery

Of old-fashioned romance, maybe

And rainy day freshened poetry.

He sold me purple bunches tied…

Oil, sachet packets…tufts, a ton…

Heart soaps, and star-shaped candles… 

Calm fragrance, thoughts to waft upon.

Oh unforeseen danger, falling in love…

Warm violet mist of embrace at dawn.

He wooed all the ladies with herbal fare

Left them weeping woeful lavender tears.

But wise, I’d purchased sea-kelp shampoo…

Washed him fully forever out of my hair.
